Have you ever gone to the beach and did not find any shells? This happens to so many people, and It can be very disappointing. If you're lucky and find some shells you may not enjoy the whole process of washing them- and if you want to paint them you have to set-up, etc...no fun!
No worries! I live near the beach, so I'm always checking for a "good shell day." My kits have everything you need to start painting, so setting up is a breeze!
Clam shells are perfect and so much fun to paint. We are not allowed to take rocks from the beach, and I don't like to take little shells that will be a home to another creature someday. So, I choose to gather clam shells, which are legal to take from the beach, unlike rocks- I'm a "rule follower" I can't help it :)! Anyway, It's a great way to use reuse clam shells in Maine.
My process is simple; I rinse the shells off at the beach, wash them at home in a bucket of dish detergent, sun-dry them outside, sandpaper smooth . It's a process, but my shells are nice and clean--ready to paint. I have a great deck that gets plenty of sun :)
Shell painting kits make a great Maine gift for yourself or that special person, Get ready for some creative fun with a paint-a-shell kit or just some shells without the painting supplies for a special project you may be working on.
Paint-A-Shell: 3 Maine clam shells (large, medium, small) , 3 paint brushes; (1 large, medium, small) Along with your choice of acrylic paint. Place your shells on the painter's cloth provided. All nicely placed in a small nautical net bag. Have fun!
Shells are not bleached, but washed and sun dried
Painting shells is fun for all ages. Please watch children that may eat shells, etc. "all ages" is appropriate with supervision of course.
